## How to Calculate Your Name Number?

Calculating the Destiny Number depends on which numerology system you choose to use. There are three systems in common use at this time: Pythagorean, Gematria, and Chaldean. While each one assigns number values to letters, they vary with some letters. For example, A is 1 in all systems. Q is 8 in the Pythagorean system, 4 in the Gematria system, and 1 in the Chaldean system.

Therefore, the Destiny number of a man named Quincy would add up from the following numbers:

Pythagorean

 Q U I N C Y 8 3 9 5 3 7 = 35 = 8

Gematria

 Q U I N C Y 4 6 5 1 3 2 = 21 = 3

Chaldean

 Q U I N C Y 1 6 1 5 3 1 = 17 = 8

As it happens, the Pythagorean and Chaldean Destiny is 8, while the Gematria Destiny is 3.

## What is the Destiny Number of your Name

The single digit number of your name reveals the energy you attract from others and the world. Knowing your Destiny Number helps you understand why people want you to play a certain role in life.

The Destiny number works in concert with the Life Path Number. When combined with the Life Path number you get the Soul Purpose Number.

Unlike the Life Path Number which drives the individual, the Destiny Number is the pulse of energy that turns people in their direction for a specific reason, related to the number meaning of that Destiny.

## The Number 33 as Your Destiny

Others seek out the 33 to teach and instruct; people continually ask them, “how do you do this or that?”. As children their peers will expect them to know and be able to explain the rules. As adults, they repeatedly need to explain how things work, why someone behaves a certain way, and what the written and unwritten rules are.

### The Number 33 and Career

The challenge for Destiny 33 individuals is slotting into roles where they can teach rather than manage. Once co-workers or employers figure out that these individuals have a gift for explaining and teaching, they will find themselves typecast for those roles. If they have a Life Path Number or Soul Purpose Number that is a 1, 5, or 8, they will have to figure out how to direct what others want from them so they can fulfill their independence, disruptive energy, or leadership.

### The Number 33 and Love

It is important for 33 individuals to understand that others will seek them out for their nurturing and compassionate energy. They can easily end up in the “friends” box when they want to be in the “lovers” box. This number can actually work in a polyamorous relationship, and they may often find themselves the object of affection from more than one person at the same time.

### Number 33 and Family

The parent or child that is a 33 can be an idealist for the family, focused on the greater good and a source of guidance and support for other family members. This interaction is fine from parent to child, but problematic if the child is always teaching and the parent learning. They need to establish and maintain boundaries because family members, like pretty much everyone else, will overstep.

### Number 33 and Health

There will be a constant pressure to guide everyone else through their health issues. These individuals will end up hearing a lot of questions like, “I have this rash, what do you think it is?”; “what’s the best way for me to lose weight?” or “can you show me how to wrap this bandage?”.

## Other Numbers and Their Importance

You also have other numerology numbers that are important and that refine your Destiny Number. No one is the pure embodiment of a number, but the Destiny Number is a foundation number (along with the Life Path and Soul Purpose numbers).
Other important and truly significant numbers include an identity number assigned by your society, like the social security number in the United States. Numbers that form your daily life are important, like your phone number numerology, or the address of you home.

## How to Use Numerology in Your Life

Once you become aware of the numbers of your life, you can use them to help you succeed in your career and your relationships. If the 33 is your Destiny Number, then realize that other people will sense you as a 33 and react to you accordingly. We are all pulsing with certain energy that acts on the world and causes the world to react.
